@DIES IMMORTALES!!! ah the shots. I did those for about two years and then I went abroad and stopped. Good luck!
@Emby what hotel? I looooove key west. I went last year with the bf and we stayed across the street from the Hemingway house. It was awesome. Go on a sunset cruise! Just don't get accidentally wasted like I did. Sailors + open bar do not mix.
@DIES IMMORTALES!!! how was he going to decimate your allergies? Just curious. Mine have been killing me this past year...even during the winter! I have to take a decongestant every friggin day, plus eye drops, and a nasal spray.
I have way too many papers to grade this weekend....this semester I'm teaching 3 sections of Eng 102 and it's slowly destroying my brain. I barely have time to do my own writing, though I did manage to write a blog post for the first time in a month (Treacle tarts from Alice In Wonderland! http://www.postcardsandpaperbacks.com/2013/03/literary-eats-treacle-tarts-from-alices.html)
Anyone have advice for balancing work with creative pursuits?
@packedsuitcase have a friend go with you! I probably never would have gotten mind if I had been by myself. Plus, it's a fun bonding thing!
yay! I'm planning a months long solo trip to the UK this summer! I am scared/excited!
@Chills Edinburgh is definitely on the list as is the fringe festival!
@Lost penguin haha yeah last time I was there in 2006 I kept telling people that I didn't vote for Bush (my own paranoia) but everyone was lovely.I myself am from New England, which tends to be pretty reserved. very similar to the English reserve
@dontannoyme I think it's just that motherly instinct kicking in. I'll tell her!
@Chills I spent a summer in London about 6 years ago so I'm definitely going back. Then I thought I'd travel around to all the spots I missed--the lake district, the cotswolds, yorkshire. I also want to visit Scotland and Ireland. I told her it's probably safer for me to be there than here, quite frankly
